In recent years, the Internet has witnessed the introduction of many peer-to-peer systems designed to realize large-scale data sharing. These platforms exhibit interesting features like self-configuration, self-healing and complete decentralization, which make them appealing for employment in ad hoc environments as well. However, the impact of ad hoc(More)
Mobile ad hoc network researchers face the challenge of achieving full functionality with good performance while linking the new technology to the rest of the Internet. A strict layered design is not flexible enough to cope with the dynamics of manet environments, however, and will prevent performance optimizations. The MobileMan cross-layer architecture(More)
MobileMAN is a project funded by the Future and Emerging Technologies arm of the IST Programme of the the European Commission. This project investigates the potentialities of the Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANET's) paradigm. Specifically, the project aims at defining and developing a metropolitan area, self-organizing, and totally wireless network, called(More)
A polysaccharide-flavonoid conjugate was developend and proposed for the treatment of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). The conjugate was synthesized by free radical grafting reaction between catechin and dextran. The chemical characterization of the conjugate was obtained by UV-Vis, 1H-NMR, FT-IR and GPC analyses, while the functionalization degree(More)
In the context of ubiquitous and pervasive computing, pub-lish/subscribe middleware is gaining momentum due to its loosely coupled communication scheme. In this paper we present Q, a publish/sub-scribe service conceived to operate in the context of mobile ad hoc networks. With Q, the overlay network that routes events from publishers to subscribers(More)
In mobile ad hoc networks, nodes interact peer-to-peer. They self-organize, share workloads and provide services that they also use. There are middleware platforms, designed for the Internet, which support the development of peer-to-peer distributed systems, providing an interface for subject-based data routing. These platforms put emphasis on(More)
Cross layering has recently emerged as a new trend to cope with performance issues of mobile ad hoc networks. The concept behind this technique is to exploit local information produced by other protocols, so as to enable optimizations and deliver better network performance. However, the need for a new interaction paradigm inside the protocol stack has to(More)
